Sweden's Gripen is in the news again, this time for the Indian Air Force MMRCA contest. The article cites reports of a "report" that the Gripen "didn't make the grade" with the IAF's Technical Evaluation Committee. Naturally, the company is denying the report.
Quote: Eddy de la Motte, director of Gripen International in India, told Aerospace DAILY, “Whether any of the competitors has failed to meet the cut for field evaluation or not is a question that should be put to the Indian Air Force. We firmly believe the report does not have any basis and the news is incorrect.
